“It was late evening when K. arrived.” -Franz Kafka, The Castle

“For a long while now the revolt of the Risach breaking with his civil-service life has no longer been possible. Bureaucracy has become omnipresent, and nowhere can it be escaped; nowhere would one find a “Rose House” and live there intimate connection with “things as they are in themselves.” We have moved irrevocably from Stifter’s world to Kafka’s.” – Milan Kundera, The Curtain
